Observation details

*rare but regular; first reported as one bird a few days ago by Daniel Irons; he found two here earlier today, and then when I went out to look for signs of breeding, I saw three together. One black-backed male with two brown-backed birds, perhaps adult females or possibly immature birds (need to research this); birds were feeding but didn’t show any potential breeding activity; photos and audio
